1. What are Dermal Fillers and its uses?

Dermal fillers are an aesthetic based gel that is injected into an area to enhance or reshape it. They are specifically made of naturally occurring elements in the skin and have the ability to lock in moisture.

These fillers when injected under the skin in the right amount will immediately repair and plump up various lines, depressions, and folds in the skin. This provides for a fuller, softer, and more youthful appearance.


2. What are fillers made up of? Are they safe?

Dermal fillers are soft, mouldable gels with a property to bind to water to increase its volume. The main ingredient in dermal fillers is a ‘Hyaluronic acid’ that occurs naturally in the skin, so allergic reactions are extremely rare. Some fillers also contain an anesthetic agent, therefore that the procedure is virtually painless.

Yes, dermal fillers are safe if the procedure is performed by a highly qualified expert.

Dr. Ritesh discusses all potential risks and concerns prior to your treatment and ensures that you are well-informed and confident in your treatment.

3. How do fillers enhance the appearance?

Dermal fillers are injected into target areas of your face to correct wrinkles, fill in deep scars, or non-surgically change the shape of certain parts of your face. When a needle is inserted into skin tissue, fillers immediately add volume to the areas of the face where they’re injected, which fills in creases, folds, depressions, and scars.

The gel can address a loss of volume since it adds natural volume to those areas where the body’s own hyaluronic acid has been depleted and smoothens the surface. The gel also reduces how much the skin can crease with facial movements, like frowning, thus preventing the wrinkle from returning.

5. Does the Dermal Filler Injection hurt?

Are they painful? How long does the pain last?
Most fillers have anesthetic included and patients do not feel anything at all. Even without anesthesia, there is mild discomfort but any tenderness should subside in just a few days.

Do I need to take any medication?
The doctor may suggest some pain relief medications or tablets to reduce bruising after treatment. Antihistamines may also be recommended for reducing swelling.


6. Are there any side effects of Dermal filler?

What are the common side effects?
The most common side effects are discomfort or pain, bruising, and swelling. These risks are often minimal, and manageable. Swelling settles relatively quickly, in a few hours only, depending on your skin type, the site of the injection, and the amount of product used. Lip enhancement may require more time to settle in. In other cases, you’ll be able to return to your normal daily activities straight away.

Follow the aftercare instructions properly and all of the side effects will subside in a weeks’ time.
